Indeed. After applying http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/10/14/235 ,
I increased RAM from 512MB to 1736MB, and the system booted without OOM.

[ 8.381581] kmemleak: Kernel memory leak detector initialized
[ 8.436724] kmemleak: Automatic memory scanning thread started
[ 88.765791] kmemleak: 275 new suspected memory leaks (see /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak)

I get some reports from /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak .
